Dude, what kinda basket doesnt spit discs every now and again? Theres no point practising with a basket that catches too well, as it won't help you get better, whenever you play on the course you'll get down on yourself when putts you hit in practice, get spat out during a round or tourney.

I own a Mach Lite and I like it, pretty easy to set up, nice-looking, and its far better than the Ching Skillshot.

Gateway Titan is the best catching and most durable. They also break down with no bolts in about 45 seconds.

Oh and NO spits.
For the price, you can't beat In Step's basket. If you coming flying in from 100', your disc will bounce out. But, if you want to practice putts all day long, you're good to go.
i agree, my philosophy is that your practice basket should be less forgiving than tournament baskets. So, in theory you will become more accurate, hitting center chain for often.

It doesn't matter what you putt on as long as you have a solid stroke. I just like to use the Titan because I take it to events were extra holes are needed and I hate it when they end up using Travelers, discatcher sports, or even those red plastic chained baskets.

For my unforgiving basket I have a Mach V. Machs are overpriced and have all kinds of weaknesses but they sound nice.

How will putting at a good basket not make you better? If I am correct you have to get it in the chains for it to spit so all I am doing is saving my back a little by not having to bend over and pick up spit putts.

IMO you are worse off putting on a whack basket like an M-14 because the amount of spits can be discouraging in practice and cause you to lose focus.

My questions are how do you find one and how much do they cost? I was looking up baskets a while ago and could not find a listed price on a Titan and could not find a retailer. I e-mailed McCormick and got no reply. I know I have played a course with Titans and liked them. However, since I have no idea how much they cost and have no idea where to find one, I have not really thought about them in a while. If you have any info help me and others Remember the Titans.
Where the hell did you find a machlite for $100!!???
